Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was flying back to the US from India. When I landed at JFK I founded out my flight was cancelled. Flight was cancelled due to weather and the next flight was not until the next day. I stayed at the airport for 24 hours. Was told that no hotel will be provided."

Pros: "Overbook"
Cons: "Overbook"

Pros: "From boarding to hospitality of all the crew members and the ease of the flight, It made it a great experience! I am not one who likes to fly but will definitely fly this airline again when the opportunity arises!"

Cons: "Flight departed 2 hrs late. No jet blue personnel were at the gate for hours, and offered no assistance with connections or alternate arrangements. Never had such a poor experience."

Pros: "EVERY THING"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The seats are wide with leg room, even on a center seat."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online, or at a kiosk, because my reservation couldn't be found. Of course, I did have one, and it took going to a counter to get it straightened out, but only after a loooong wait and then barely making it to the gate in time for boarding. Before a 90-minute delay."

Pros: "Boarding first from rear seats worked for me because that's where I was sitting. Worked also for people in rows before they were announced. Gate agent didn't care I guess. My row mates get credit for sharing my middle armrests. Seats are tight. Loved the free Direct TV. Perfect for longer flights. Chose no food"
Cons: "Boarding first from rear seats worked for me because that's where I was sitting. Worked also for people in rows before they were announced. Gate agent didn't care I guess. My row mates get credit for sharing my middle armrests. Seats are tight. Crew didn't enforce the 'upright & locked' in row ahead at landing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Even though the flight was delayed, and I had over an hour before take off, I was not permitted to board. In times past, I have flown American Airlines with no issues, JetBlue was extremely unaccommodating."

Cons: "We had mechanical problems prior to take off. Our flight was delayed for a couple of hours. Once inside the aircraft, we were kept there for an additional 2 1/2 hours before take off. We landed in Fort Lauderdale 5 hours later than the scheduled time. We got home at 5:00 AM. Unexeptable!!!!!!"

Pros: "Staff was friendly, courteous, and helpful."

Pros: "I Enjoy Every Moment In Puerto Rico La Parguera En El Pueblo De Lajas , La Guancha En Ponce, Playa Crashboard En Aguadilla, El Faro En Rincon ,Playa Jobos En Isabela,Balneario De Boquerón En Cabo Rojo Me Encantan Las Playas El Agua Es Tan Clara Y La Arena Blanca ,Las Gente Es Muy Servicial."
Cons: "No Tener Más Días Para Seguir Disfrutando. I Love My Island Is Beatiful."

Cons: "Long security lines; contradictory agent instructions; couldn't pick seat; flight delayed three times; Uncomfortable seats."

Cons: "Flight delayed 3 hrs....they didn't even apologise or explain why."

Pros: "The seats. The Wi-FI. The price of ticket."
Cons: "The delays. No notice. Boarding delayed by 45 minutes. 20 more in bay after doors shut. "We are in 20th position for take-off. Another hour. Arr over 2 hrs. Late. Attendents disappeared for a few hours. Sad."

Cons: "Terribly cold flight. When asked for a blanket, they wanted $5, which I couldn't pay because they wouldn't accept cash. 2 hours of complete misery. :("

Cons: "I have never had so much trouble with a website/app as with JetBlue for this trip. Checking in was super stressful, since it was a short layover and I had to go through customs. There were few employees to help when I couldn't print my boarding pass, and when I handed my already checked bag off (it was checked through) without a boarding pass the JetBlue employee was extremely passive aggressive and acted like it was somehow my fault I hadn't been able to get it printed and there had been no one around to ask. The flight crew was highly professional and the flight was good, but I was pretty disappointed by customer service on the ground."

Pros: "More legroom, free wifi, free entertainment choices, unlimited drinks & snacks, on-time and efficient"
Cons: "1) Boarding process was not clear on the ticket or anywhere (really not a big deal). 2) When reading about perks and restrictions after we bought tickets, the company mentions certain "classes" of tickets..i.e. "Blue", "Blue Plus" and "Blue Flex" but since I had already bought our tickets, I had no idea which type of fare we bought, since Jet Blue does not provide that information on your ticket information once purchased."

Cons: "Tv didn't work"

Cons: "It's a shame there are so few options for travel to the caribbean from NYC these days. These carriers are charging entirely too much for a very average experience!!!!"

Pros: "The check in process with Jet Blue is always seamless and quick. Great communication. I enjoyed the free wi-fi and under-the-seat outlets. Also love how refreshments are available to grab at anytime."
Cons: "The sound on the movies, etc. is terrible! And half the time the screens don't work."

Pros: "The people who worked there were professional. The other passengers were nice."
Cons: "The seats, even the upgraded ones, didn't recline sufficiently to let my head drop back. This meant that for a period of four plus hours, I was stuck in an incredibly uncomfortable sitting position -- tilted slightly forward, via the placement of my head. And it also meant that the only way to try to sleep was by pitching forward over the tray, hunched forward in a way that didn't allow me to breathe fully. I tried slouching down, and it didn't help. The way that the lumbar was positioned also pushed me forward. The pillows were too small to lift my head much off the tray. Perhaps it's my height and weight. If I was shorter or taller or thinner, my options might have increased. Regardless, if the airlines are going to squish us together, they might consider how to give us some flexibility with regards to placement of back rests, like we have in cars -- adjustment of lumbar curve."

Pros: "I enjoyed the movie when it was on! I enjoyed the leg room as well! The plane was nice and new and I felt safe!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, and I tried to switch flights to get on with my family since the flight was delayed and they wanted to charge me $600. The flight was cold so I purchased a blanket."

Pros: "Under seat outlets for the win."
Cons: "I was all good for an hour into my cross country flight when another passenger randomly took an empty seat in my row. I almost had the traveler's dream: an entire row to stretch out across!"

Cons: "Had to pay for snacks and blanket, which is ridiculous. Very disappointed."

Pros: "Flight was fine, once it departed."
Cons: "I arrived at JFK after 24 hours of travel from Myanmar. My JetBlue flight was delayed 5-1/4 hours. The delay was devastating."

Pros: "Free Wi-fi"
Cons: "Delayed multiple times and a major gate change, then sat on runway awaiting takeoff for 30+ mins."

Pros: "One pass through the aisle with drink and snack Never again"

Pros: "Nice leg room"

Pros: "Kind crew member."

Pros: "Flight was so delayed car rental was closed seats did not recline therefore quite uncomfortable..."

Cons: "Todo muy bien"

Pros: "Very good price. Very good cabin. Very good crew."
Cons: "No free blankets. Snacks were not appropriate for a 5 to 6 hours flight."

Pros: "The tvs are nice. The selection of snacks the one time they came around was good. I also liked the phone charger ports."
Cons: "They only came around once on our 6 hour trip to offer snacks and drinks. I think a second round should have happened. Also our plane came into the wrong terminal so we had to walk over 20 minutes to the different terminal to get our luggage. They didn't really explain how to do that."

Pros: "Delayed 1.5 hrs, then sat on plane for two hours before being returned to the gate, re-boarded 45 mins later and sat on the plane another hour before finally taking off. We were supposed to leave at 10.40, we didn't leave till around 4."

Pros: "Comfortable"

Cons: "Overheard some of the crew members talking bad and/or making fun of a passenger...in front of other passengers! Also the movies were old."

Pros: "The flight was one of the best domestic flights I have ever taken. Amazingly helpful and courteous cabin crew, excellent customer service, great add-ons like free wifi and snacks. I think I will only be taking jet blue now, especially if the price remains somewhat similar to other carriers. It is simply the best."

Pros: "Nice staff, loved free wifi and tv streaming"
Cons: "Was 1hr late to arrive due to weather"

Cons: "Too cold and noxious fumes prior to take-off which was delayed nearly 2 hours."

Pros: "The snacks were fresh"
Cons: "Several delays, long wait time AFTER we were COMPLETELY boarded, non-communication between staff & passengers regarding WHY we sat on plane for at LEAST an HOUR after boarding, and flight personnel not double checking to make sure that all passengers had something to drink after the snacks were given. JetBlue needs to get it together!!! I will DEFINITELY avoid them in the future!!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our crew was delayed in Philadelphia hours before our flight yet we wer not notified until 20 minutes before our boarding that we would now have a 2.5 hour delay"

Pros: "The courteous behavior shown to seniors couple (us)."
Cons: "One of the bags was missing which could be collected only next day. It could have been delivered at our home. The missing and revisiting the airport caused lots of inconvenience. The staff was polite throughout however."

Pros: "One flight attendant was adamant about a passenger across from me, covering his nose AND mouth during the flight and constantly checked to make sure he was following the rules."
Cons: "The safety instructions portion of the flight was not thorough. They just held up the large card and stood there. No true demonstration which was important to me as I was sitting in the emergency exit row."

Cons: "Delayed 4 hours on tarmack"

Pros: "Cabin crew were very good. Very pleasant."
Cons: "Unpacking wet clothes from one of my bags. It must have been left out in the rain for some time. I filed a separate complaint with Delta."

Pros: "Long haul business class seat."

Pros: "Service from the crew."
Cons: "Quality and comfort of seats. Quality of food. The TV screen was from the 80s."

Pros: "NONE"
Cons: "The service was terrible. Also a ripped off base on I was expecting to be treated as if I was on Virgin nothing compares to it . Delta plane making a loud noise we can even heard anything when pilot does announcement. I want my money back or I should be reinbuise some how."

Pros: "movie choices are great"
Cons: "the people sitting behind me kept talking about dying from the aircraft, it makes me uncomfortable."

Pros: "I was automatically upgraded."
Cons: "I was upgraded, which I appreciate very much. However, I was upgraded to a window seat. With my bladder situation it was comfortable. This is why I only book aile seats."

Pros: "That I made it to Dublin"
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to aircraft issues making us 2 hours late for vacation. THIS IS MY HARD EARNED MONEY! I literally put blood, sweat and many many tears into this trip. The flight attendant was so rude on this trip. It was like she was absolutely offended by my presence. I barely even spoke to her except to make sure of my vegetarian tray to which I got the nasty reply "You'll have to wait because I don't have it with me now". If I wasn't so focused on sleeping as much as I could I would have written her name down. No complimentary cocktails for Preferred Seating? Seriously? What did I upgrade for exactly? Literally four inches of space? Late, rude, money sucking industry who holds no accountability for wrong doings. Don't get into the Health Industry.. you'll kill people with this flippant attitude. Bleh.. I doubt I'll fly with Delta again. The thought of having to do so turns my stomach."

Pros: "One of The crew members a guy from Texas was nice"
Cons: "The female crew Members were taking loudly and a lot during the flight it was difficult to sleep as a result. The food was low and very very bad"

Pros: "The food was good and the staff was competent and friendly. There was a large choice of inflight entertainment (but the sound was mushy)."
Cons: "Although more comfortable than most, the seats were cramped (for 10 hours). Boarding was delayed 30", but we did not take off for 3 more hours. I really don't know why. It felt like the NYC MTA: poor communications. The boarding process required an avoidable half hour of standing in lines."

Pros: "Efficient boarding process and friendly crew. Timely arrival is the good enough for these regional flights. Comfort+ seats are good."

Pros: "Plane was very clean and flight attendants were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Delta's domestic terminal at JFK is far too crowded, even at 8AM."

Cons: "The upgraded seat was horrible - and I want a complete discount."

Cons: "This is possibly the worst airplane food ive ever had. Ever. The chicken didn't look nor taste like chicken and it was in some weird green chickpea sauce?? Very unpleasant."

Pros: "Good food (for economy), lots of little perks (like eye shades), and most importantly, excellent service from the flight attendants. One of my best transatlantic flights."

Pros: "The staff onboard was friendly and attentive. They made every effort to make sure I had whatever I wanted. Boarding was quick and easy. The onbaord entertainment system had a large selection and I was never without something worth watching."
Cons: "The first class accommodation isn't as good as advertised. The seat is supposed to completely recline allowing you to sleep. Unfortunately if you're 6 foot or taller there isn't enough room. Other airlines like Emirates gives you more room in their business class so it's disappointing to see United 1st class is so cramped. The screens for the onboard entertainment system in first class are lower quality then those used in coach."

Pros: "WiFi, good flight attendants"
Cons: "Would like to see Direct TV along with Delta Suite so can watch live TV"

Pros: "Delta Comfort seats"
Cons: "Delta employee who drive shuttle to connection stopped to drop off a passenger and proceed to chat w other workers thereby getting me to my gate late and missing my connection and getting me to Florida almost 3 hours later than planned. Agents at desk in JFK were rude. There was another Delta employee also on the shuttle who was the only one who seemed to show concern. He alerted the driver, called the boarding gate and led me to it."

Pros: "Everything up to departure. Sat in line for almost an hour."

Pros: "The Airbus A330 business class seating was more spacious and comfortable than the Boeing 767 I flew to Paris from ATL."

Cons: "they charge 300$ extra for a 14 year old child and dont give any service for the payment, they say it is to bring the child on and off the plane even though he can travel alone and has done it many times with other air lines. drive the parents uo the wall, make them wait endless time, and then they comlaine that thay have no time tofor the child and leave him standing with out even letting him to seat with the other air lines a child of 12 can travel alone."

Pros: "Friendly crew, ok seats"
Cons: "Was not possible to even request a coffee"

Cons: "Expected a two hour layover, but due to delay I ended up waiting more that 14 hours at the terminal."

Pros: "The good the crew and the bed"
Cons: "The overheads were noisey and loud and made it difficult to sleep"

Cons: "The flight was cancelled after several attempts to departure. We had to spent the whole night in the JFK airport. Finally, it departed to Detroit with 2.5 hours delay. It was a nightmare."

Pros: "I love deltas crew. Quick service and they let you sleep. Very efficient boarding. Excellent."

Cons: "Individual seat space is small, nor do seats recline much."

Pros: "Flight was quick, crew efficient"
Cons: "Despite having this flight booked for over a month I was not issued a seat until gate check in and had to sit and wait till they figured out their "overbooked" situation. I had to approach the desk four times because they wouldn't give me any indication of what zone I should line up for, and the desk crew were rude. Ended up being the last to board."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "My flight got cancelled. Terrible customer service. My bags didn't travel with me. My vacation got screwed up."

Pros: "Delta Comfort+"
Cons: "Boarding In-flight entertainment Meal Service"

Cons: "Long lines trying to resolve delayed flights. Ni weather issues reported."

Pros: "Everything was great from the check in process to the de-planing in Detroit. When we checked in at SLC the agent used my last name, which showed me the extra mile Delta staff will go to make the travel with them professional and curious. The flight left on time and when we arrived in Detroit our bags were already there waiting for us. Couldn't have asked for more!"
Cons: "Nothing at all"

Pros: "Great service, a lot of food, good entertainment"
Cons: "I don't understand why people take babies on red eyes. It makes the flight so unpleasant. I wish airlines would discourage this."

Pros: "Every thing went well thx"

Pros: "Window seat"
Cons: "-"

Pros: "Lots of great food n free new movies! Crew was polite and on top of their stuff :)"

Pros: "The flight was not full so we got to spread out. The flight crew was attentive. The onboard entertainment was good and free."
Cons: "As usual, the staff at JFK was a little on the surly-side - that's New York so you have to expect it."

Pros: "The fact that the flight was direct. Entertainment options. Availability of USB and power outlets once you upgraded to priority seating."
Cons: "Flight was delayed as a result of volunteers getting off the plane due to overbooking. Their luggage had to be found and unloaded. Abusive and rude ground and security staff. On board staff was curt and was just going through the motions. Priority Seating seats were flimsy and extremely uncomfortable for a 10hr flight, even using the front seat pocket felt like you being kicked in the back. Seats reclined only 3 inches. Quality of food was pathetic. Serving trays were so small that is was impractical to eat out of them as food served barely fit in them. Toilets and sinks were clogged and dirty 1.5hrs into the flight. In short, it felt like you were traveling on a cheap bus."

Pros: "The crew was attentive, pleasant, and hardworking."
Cons: "Tight leg room in coach. Cramped and uncomfortable."

Cons: "Seats were cramped, very uncomfortable."

Pros: "The crew was really nice"
Cons: "I paid for comfort seat. First it had part of the door that stood in the way. Secondly, what is even worst is that other people could seat in the comfort seats after the doors were closed without paying it!!!! Next time delta will not have my money!!!!"

Cons: "The seat was very uncomfortable in delta comfort zone."

Pros: "Crew was helpful, plane was clean and food is decent"
Cons: "Have to request wheelchair service twice as the receiving staff handing the wheelchair to another company for departure staff. Only one counter handles wheelchair request at each leg. They are so strict with liquids that all baby foods had to put in a separate bin and we had to go to another security point for clearance. It took 2.5 hours to go through all that, that is with wheelchair priority! Boarding was horrible at the gate."

Cons: "The gate for the connecting flight from NY to Rome wasn't posted at the terminal or available via the Delta aps. The Kayak AP didn't have it either. I found out late that it was practially at a different airport. With less than an hour I had to take a bus to a different terminal, walk through, exit onto the street, cross the street and walk down the block to a different terminal. Then I had to re-enter through security (where the line was wrapped back to the front doors). Had the flight not been delayed for mechanical issues I would have missed it. My flights were purchased through Delta. If Delta uses different airlines they should post gate information on their web sites."

Pros: "Flew in past no problem this trip seats were very close when person in front reclined his chair it touched my knees. Not enough leg room."
Cons: "Not enough leg room, knees hurt difficult to sleep. Also booked flight 3 months in advance so we could sit together as family. At gate they put my husband 20 rows separate from us. Surprised by this, I thought Delta was a better airline. Staff on plane was courteous and worked hard for entire trip."

Cons: "food made me sick, the seat wouldn't move back, the screen for the "entertainment" was out of focus"

Cons: "Old aircraft. No food variety. Old entertaining system. Delayed."

Cons: "more legroom"

Pros: "Yes."

Cons: "Flight delayed 24 hrs"

Pros: "Flights were always on time . Most staff members were friendly. Seats are comfortable. I looove that they allow you a purse and a true carry on ."
Cons: "Movie selection on long flights not impressive ."

Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "I wish these airlines would remember that people on the place are PEOPLE. After multiple delays, including one where we sat on a hot plane for over an hour, they did very little to make us comfortable. There's a reason why AA sits right next to United in terms of poor customer experiences"

Cons: "Getting baggage took an hour"

Pros: "Crew nice"

Pros: "The crew was helpful and fast in turning plane over."
Cons: "Flight delayed from 1015 pm departure to 1135pm, so I had to making my arrival at 1am. Hard are the person picking me up. Despite the fact that they moved my flight they closed the Aa lounge at 10 and kick you out, even though they moved my flight"

Pros: "Great staff"

Pros: "I like the fact we got to Dayton 20 minutes early!"
Cons: "I don't like the fact that we don't have access to the overhead"

Pros: "Unfavourable crew. Pilot was very good and detailed though."
Cons: "The smell on airplane, was not offered any water to drink."

Cons: "A few issues: 1) I was not given seat tgth with my 9 year old and was not helped in finding seats together 2) they lost my bag after I took it through customs and I'm still (a week already) waiting for it."

Pros: "Everyone was nice, and accommodating. It was our 3 and 5yr olds first flight. Thank you very much American Airlines!!"

Pros: "Friendly staff. In-flight entertainment included."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late taking off and arriving. Once we landed it took 15 minutes to locate someone to bring the ramp out to the plane. Just incompetence on part of American Airlines."

Cons: "Too long of a layover when flying from san diego through phoenix to detroit. Need to look for improvement in scheduling to make this a trip enjoyable."

Pros: "Entertainment system was great."
Cons: "Seats too small. I mean waaaay too small."

Cons: "Nothing was bad overall. It was a very nice flight"

Pros: "The AA app for entertainment works well, friendly crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 90+ minutes, yet they didn't tell anyone until 90 minutes prior to departure. They knew of system delays and should have updated many hours before the flight but they didn't and had us all there very early waiting around doing nothing."

Pros: "Snacks and Beverage"
Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "Always on time and always comfortable."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew is good"

Cons: "Old plane, no entertainment"

Pros: "Easy direct flight from Detroit to Miami. The flight was on time, and we had no problems. The cost of the flight was approximately $180 round trip, which I thought was a good value."
Cons: "Checking a single bag costs $25 each way, which is irritating when they beg to check all the carry-ons at the gate."

Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for two hours!"

Pros: "It was very smooth once we were able to take off!"
Cons: "We were delayed in the plane almost an hour with no cool air. They had technical problems."

Pros: "Clean environment of the terminals and the speed of the shuttle."
Cons: "no comment."

Pros: "Everything was great. Slept the entire flight."

Cons: "Delayed three separate times, American Airlines employees were rude when asked why the flight kept getting delayed. Arrived 3 hours later than expected."

Cons: "We were waiting for 6 hours then our flight got cancelled. We got another flight which is in the second day !! And I am going back to MIAMI on Sunday 7:00 am . What a bad airlines!!"

Cons: "Flight from Ny to Detroit was delayed for 2 hrs. Coming back was worse after multiple delays, they cancelled the flight. they put me on a flight for next day with 2 connections which will reach ny almost 20 hrs later, no aplogises, no hotel room. After more calls put me in another United flight later that night which also finally got cancelled. I had to book a new flight with delta and paid $460 on the spot for that. Still awaiting my refund from American for the return leg which was cancelled and left a lady traveling alone stranded at Detroit airport in the night. Apology or compensation -- forget it, you will never get that! Only now if they can refund my cancelled flight..."

Pros: "Finally getting to my final destination and out of DFW."
Cons: "The flight was originally scheduled to take off at 8:20 pm, but due to several delays did not end up getting off the ground until after 11 pm. After being in the air for about 45 minutes we were informed that there were issues with the engine and that we would be turning around and heading back to Dallas. By this point it was after midnight, and although I was appreciative that safely is a priority, there was no communication as to what the next steps were. After landing we were finally told that we would have to deplane, and after we sat around the gate for awhile we were informed that the flight would be delayed until 5 am. Being 12:50 am at this point a hotel would have been nice, but we were informed that AA was "out of hotels" but that if we wanted we could have a $12 food voucher to use at the one restaurant that was open several terminals over. The AA employee assisting in handing out the food vouchers seemed extremely unapologetic about the situation which didn't help with the frustration everyone was feeling. I will not be booking with AA again, and will be passing along my negative experience to family and friends. It is worth spending the extra money on a ticket for an airline that is more reliable with better customer service."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful. Our flight was delayed 3 hours and they did their best to keep all the passengers comfortable and happy."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment to rate"

Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "Delay disorganized staff that was not friendly or helpful lost luggage"

Cons: "Plane out dated . It was sad. Tinny seats. And again they boarded all group 1 at once. And all of group 2 at once. Should of done by so many seats\rows. It was horrible. I wouldn't fly American again. Unless I won a trip"

Cons: "The only reason for the one star, is that there was no entertainment or did on the flight. So those categories didn't apply. For me, in my flight experience, it's to get to where i need to be and not to be entertained. Food and drinks aren't needed, I can get that when i get to my destination."

Pros: "On board crew were friendly."
Cons: "The lady working the gate said they do not upgrade service members to first class and could not upgrade our seats. She told us that all American Airlines have different policys in different states. Which is strange."

Pros: "Helpfulness of employees"

Cons: "Was initially told there would be a 2 hour delay because of weather, as the sun beamed down and announced this 2 minutes prior to boarding. Ticket agent at the gate desk was less then helpful, " I don't know what to tell you Sir""

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact my luggage didn’t arrive with me in Detroit and that we were 30 min late and couldn’t get off the plane because of lighting like come on!!"

Cons: "my reservation was cancelled by united with out checking with me."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and the crew was attentive"

Cons: "No food provided"

Pros: "seats are comfortable"

Cons: "I'm very upset I left an item in the overhead bin and had customer service call over as soon as we realized, but they said it wasn't there. There's no way, it had to be there and they didn't look very hard. I submitted a claim and they still haven't found it."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very responsive"
Cons: "The food was very disappointing. Dry fried chicken with rice."

Cons: "No beverage service, glass of room temp water, no ice"

Cons: "My seat didn't recline, no free movies/TV."

Pros: "This was one of the top 5 worst flights. I have over 150k of miles logged. I will do my best to NEVER fly United again."

Cons: "Very long delay"

Pros: "I have absolutely nothing to say good about this airport"
Cons: "We were canceled (our flight in Newark) were herded around like cattle and then left to fend for ourselves .. With no apologies .. We got jumbled around to three different flights until we found one that would fit they try to get us on one flight and boarded in like 45 minutes and there was no way were going to make it manageable us around again , it was awful.."

Cons: "."

Cons: "Didn't make it"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "The whole services!"

Pros: "The crew on United was very helpful on my July 2 flight"
Cons: "You sold me a ticket on Lufthansa. When I got to Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris I waited 45 minutes in line to check in with Lufthansa. When I got to the counter they said they had no record of my reservation. When I showed them the Lufthansa reservation they told me it actually was for a United flight, even though it clearly said Lufthansa . I had to wait another 45 minutes in the United line to retrieve my boarding pass, then about another hour to go through passport control and security. I barely made my flight. I will never make a reservation through Kayak again. I am deleting your app."

Pros: "Quick load and exit"
Cons: "Small plane. Dozens of bags taken in jetway so a long wait for delivery. Rough ride throughout"

Pros: "Price looked good at booking."
Cons: "Old prop plane was grounded 5 min. after our boarding time. Went to several gates to try to hop on another flight but nothing got me to my destination in time -- so a total loss. Tried to cancel by phone (line to gate service was 50+ people deep), and was told I couldn't cancel. Then was told I could. Then was told I had to call back! TOTAL LOSS. Refund is needed."

Pros: "For all everything was OK"

Pros: "Quick, comfortable, smooth, and pleasant"

Pros: "Patrick- flight attendant"

Pros: "We experienced a lot of turbulence during the flight but the pilot handled the situation extremely well."
Cons: "The turbulence"

Pros: "The seats were more confortable. They could be a bit taller for head room but space between seats and the width of seats were very comfortable."
Cons: "The crew seemed very unpleasant. The guy (head crew) was very rude. When asking us to do things he just said it with a tone that was very unneeded. You could tell he didn't want to be there. The lady flight artendant was nice just facially her expressions make her look stand off ish. They talked about passengers to each other in the aisle ways and made comments that "they've talk to this lady each several times and she's not listening". Seemed like private conversation they could try and have."

Pros: "Nothing about it"
Cons: "Everytime I fly United there is ALWAYS a delay. I will never choose to fly United again. I had two flight which were both delayed, very upset about it."

Cons: "I had to see assistant bc plane was full. Had to get economy plus and pay for that. There weren't even snacks on the flight. Not a good experience overall."

Cons: "The flight was late/ delayed over 6 hours. The crew was rude and very unprofessional. This was the worst experience i have ever had flying. I can honestly say I will Never fly United airlines again. I understand that flights get delayed, but when every worker at the flight check in desk, and flight attendants are rude and have a smug attitude as if they don't care then at that point i walk away from ever doing business with you again."

Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours without any real explanation of why. They ended up moving us to a new gate at the last minute."

Cons: "Delays both ways"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No running water in the bathroom. No space in the overhead compartment."

Pros: "On timing"

Pros: "Only an hour flight"
Cons: "Same as earlier flight but didn't try wifi."

Pros: "Fast boarding, close gate"
Cons: "Tight seating"

Pros: "R flight was cancelled and did not fine out until we were at the airport.."
Cons: "That r flight was cancelled and there was no other flight"

Pros: "The personal were mostly very freindly"
Cons: "My carry-on had to go through the scanner a few times and finally had to be checked. The check person was calling out "who's bag" and I did not hear her. She scolded me for not listening."

Pros: "Good crew, polite, professional. Clean cabin."
Cons: "1. No video screens. A/V offered through wifi to PDAs, but no USB charging could limit viewing. 2. Seating is too close. 3. Very limited micro-snacks."

Pros: "Again friendly"
Cons: "Rough flight and technical problems then had to wait another 45 mins on runway to get to the door"

Pros: "Movie streaming over WiFi worked on this flight."
Cons: "Snowboard Bag was ejected very hard onto the belt by airport person. Dented my hard case. There was a gentlemen who saw his guitar being tossed out onto the belt. Very little respect for peoples' luggage."

Cons: "Didn't even get to fly they canceled all my flights with no resolutions"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "The space between seat was better than the long haul United light from Houston to Tokyo. The piloting was smooth for take off and landing. The flight was on time."

Pros: "Crew members very kind. Loved my seat"

Pros: "Seating was good."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Ended up on a direct flight to Detroit on another airline."

Cons: "Notices of the delayed flight ahead of time -- no notice was given until the original time of departure, when there was no plane in sight, so everyone was standing around wondering what was going on."

Pros: "The flight from San Diego to Denver was great, the members of the crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The flight from Denver to Detroit was extremely late causing a huge delay in the entire process. Once we finally got ready to takeoff, we had to pull in yet again because there were passengers on the plan that weren't scheduled to go to Detroit.. all of these problems are somewhat understandable, but the crew FAILED TO EMPATHIZE WITH US AT ALL. They even made smart remarks about people going to the bathroom when we pulled back in... I feel some of them acted extremely unprofessional and I truly never want to fly with this company again."

Pros: "Whole flight"
Cons: "Everything it was great"

Pros: "The check in Gal was great."
Cons: "Everything else."

Pros: "Price, knee room"
Cons: "Separate pricing for carry -on luggage, playing games with seat availability"

Cons: "The disorganization checking one check bag. I arrived in plenty of time. Very long line to check the bag (no skycab available). Majority of people in line arrived with only a short time before their flight and had to be rushed ahead of me to get to their flight on time. I finally arrived to the front of the line after about 45 minutes and 50% of the people behind me were on flights leaving in 30 minutes or less and had to go ahead of my husband and I. They obviously did not arrive with the advised amount of time allowance. It wasn't my fault I arrived with plenty of time and I had to deal with the verbal abuse from people having to go ahead. Maybe if they missed their flight, next time they would arrive earlier with enough time. It sure wasn't a very pleasant experience at all."

Cons: "We are on delta because we got to frontier line 1 hour and 15 min before flight. Lady proceeds to tell us are gate is closed and we can't get on plane and then ignored us with no answers or help. Proceeded to ask other employees and they were all clueless. The worst service my wife and I have ever seen or had. $616 later we are on are way home .with delta. Ruined are whole vacay and I would pay extra to go with delta."

Pros: "Flight attendants weren't very friendly"
Cons: "Drink service moved to fast"

Pros: "Adequate - got us there safely"
Cons: "Not even a coke"

Pros: "Crew were friendly and professional."
Cons: "Uncomfortable plane/seats. 1 hour delay in boarding then another 1/2 hour delay waiting for luggage to be loaded. 3/4 hour wait to check luggage. Cheap fare equals poor service."

Pros: "Arriving early"
Cons: "Haven't to pay a fee for my actual seat and checked bags. Seems very excessive."

Pros: "The flight attendants"
Cons: "The screaming kids and babies"

Pros: "Flight left on time and great customer service ."

Cons: "It's ridiculous that you have to pay 40$ both ways for a carryon, your airline advertised a cheaper flight but with hidden fees. Will never fly again."

Pros: "Price of airline ticket. , plane was fairly new and we had a smooth ride all the way to our destination."
Cons: "Seat were small and didn't recline . No wifi ."

Pros: "The crew was polite and a departure delay was made up with an expedited flight time."
Cons: "You can not adjust the seats and the seats are a piece of plastic with some thin foam with leather. You can figure out the rest."

Cons: "Pathetic seats Don't even get complimentary drinks"

Cons: "I was told my carry on bag was not a carry on and I had to pay 40 dollars extra to have it put in the cargo hold. When I looked at the other passengers bringing on their carry on bag which was the same size as mine I felt I was ripped off for an extra fee just to make money off me. I will never fly frontier crappy airlines again."

Pros: "Roomy seat"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline. Didn't even offer a glass pf water, come on !!!"

Pros: "Ditto"
Cons: "Ditto"

Pros: "The crew and attendants, service, promptness, seating space. Modt pleasurable experience. Thank you, Norine"

Pros: "There was a gate issue in PHX, but they found another gate and we still arrived on time."
Cons: "I do not like random seat assignment. I was not aware of this until check-in."

Pros: "The animals on the tail of the planes."
Cons: "Misplaced luggage going to Detroit and retiring back to Denver. Waited 1 1\2 hours to locate. Caused a lot of problems."

Pros: "Customer Service, Pilots and Flight Attendants were fantastic!"
Cons: "The seats are extremely uncomfortable!!!"

Pros: "Efficient and quick. Got us in 30 minutes early"
Cons: "Small tray tables"

Cons: "rough landing"

Pros: "Frontier Airlines were a pleasant change from Spirit Airlines if only from the point that there were no delays."
Cons: "I can't think of a single thing other than the seat prices and the luggage charges are more than Spirit, however, the weight maximums are more than Spirit allow and that was pleasing."

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly. Flight was on time leaving and landed early. I was hesitant to book with Frontier after reading reviews but I was very happy with my flight."
Cons: "Seats are okay for a shorter flight but not comfortable enough for a longer flight."

Cons: "Worst seats I've ever been on."

Cons: "Excessive baggage fees"

Pros: "The flights left in time and actually arrived early. The crew was nice. It was a great experience."

Pros: "Left right on time & arrived early."
Cons: "Paying $45.00 for a carry-on ... "stinks". Fold down table is too small. Unable to adjust seat made for an uncomfortable 2 1/2 hours. I'm flying back to Fort Myers on Tuesday (2-16-16). Can you give me a "free" carry-on? Don (248) 798-6660"

Cons: "Baggage did not arrive due to weight limitations which in my opinion is due to too many seats crammed onto the plane. My 89/91 year old parents first class seats were possibly a few inches wider and still 3 seats across...that's a rip off. No TSA - pre check. Limited staff for check in with long lines. Also, only 2 check-in kiosks with only one working and no assistant to help speed along the process. I witnessed one man who spent approximately ten minutes trying to print his boarding pass. Cheap tickets which result in getting what you pay for."

Pros: "The plane was clean and the attendants were professional as well as funny in their presentation. There was adequate leg room and the cabin conditions were good (ie lighting and temperature). It was overall a good flight! The flight was on time leaving and arrived 40 minutes early, quite a surprise, maybe a tail wind."
Cons: "I know the flight , for me, was a great price, but a small drink of either water or pop would have been appreciated."

Cons: "Frontier NEEDS TSA Pre-Check!!"

Pros: "Newer plane, more leg room than usual with slimmer depth seat design"
Cons: "New tray design too small"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Check in line took over an hour and almost caused us and several other passengers to miss our flights. Seats are cramped and uncomfortable. Hidden fees are worse than any other airline. Initial tickets are cheap but eventually cost as much as any other airline, I will remember this in the future and avoid booking with Frontier whenever possible."

Pros: "Left on time, arrived early, smooth flight, good landing , excellent price"
Cons: "Smaller seating"

Pros: "Not much except for the fare"
Cons: "My husband has had two back surgeries within 3 months and has trouble walking. NO ONE would help us with a wheelchair. Kept saying they were too busy. We had to walk and and were almost the last to board due to the time it took him to get there. It was terrible service and those who saw him and turned us down should be ashamed."

Pros: "The airline boards early so you can leave as soon as possible. Nice clean planes. Friendly staff"

Cons: "Horrible turbulence the worst I have ever experienced"

Pros: "Frontier was wonderful again. On time, great service, great price!"

Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "It was all good :-)"

Pros: "Pilot did good job and enjoyed the flight"

Pros: "on Time."
Cons: "Check in by computer 24 hours in advance did not work. The guy in front of me at the check in line had the same problem."

Pros: "Staff and flight were just fine. Those seats? They're horrible and uncomfortable. Greyhound bus seats would be more comfortable ."

Pros: "Seats are like sitting in a folding chair it was miserable on a 3.5 hour flighr"

Pros: "I was shocked to find out we had to pay an extra $16 per seat and $35 per checked bag after booking the flight. Between kayak and Frontier, they have mastered de-bundling and "the bait and switch" concepts. They got us this time....not good for building customer loyalty. So long kayak and Frontier."

Pros: "Cheap and everything was fine"
Cons: "Make sure you don't bring carry on items and then get charged!"

Cons: "Too many extra charges, reminded me of Spirit Airlines, which I no longer fly for the same reason. And there was little to no space around my seat - the seatbacks do not recline, the tray table is a small shelf. I was not comfortable for nearly 3 hours. :("
